The MD Anderson seminar in September sounds awesome! I live in the Houston area and would love to attend, but I can't find anything online about it - can you direct me to where I can find more information? Thanks :)

Love,
Cecile

I am getting senile. I know I read about a seminar coming in September. When I looked online there was a seminar on July 22 with the Anti-Cancer guy. I bet there will be another one rolling around soon. Going to keep looking and I will get back with you.

Have I ever told you how much I love the pic with the cat. It makes me laugh every time I see it...{{{Cecile}}}

Here is the information on September's conference. The anti-cancer guy is the keynote speaker.....maybe we can go....only problem is my daughter's baby shower is that month.

Thanks so much for the great info! Come to think of it, it was the Conference I was interested in - no wonder I couldn't find anything on the 'net. (now who's the senile one?!? hehe).
If anyone out there is planning to go, it would be really nice to meet you!

Glad you like the cat - it makes me laugh, too! :)

Love,
Cecile

it's a particularly nice photo of you because you're smiling, just great. yep, photo of me at the world series of poker in vegas playing in the women's event. came nowhere near winning, but out of 1100 women and 20 men (illegal to keep them out, but what jerks, couldn't let women have something that excluded them--even though there were hundreds of other tournaments going on at the same time!), i came in around 230, so beat most of the others. still, very disappointing not to have gotten closer. but am definitely improving my game, and doing a lot of practicing and reading up on the game. though a lot of luck is involved, it does beat the odds of a crap shoot.....
